Bringing you the flavors of Puglia through imported foods and olive oil, & exclusive getaways.

Puglia is a magical place. As the "heel" of Italy's boot,  a peninsula within a peninsula, it is a place where travelers must choose to go. Off the beaten path, trains traversing Italy North to South end their journey here, even the last cobblestones of the ancient Roman Via Appia are laid here.

Thick olive groves, rocky soils, and sea waters on three sides have created a land of unique culture, language, and history. Puglia harbors Italy's best olive oil, ancient vineyards, and some of the best culinary traditions Italy has to offer.  Italians are well acquainted with this "secret", but outside travelers rarely journey to this southern corner of Italy.

We are two sisters with family roots in Puglia. Our mother was born here and so was her mother and her mother. Our family's roots in Puglia are as deep as those of the centuries old olive trees. We have come to appreciate the many gifts Puglia has to offer - from food and wine to its ancient customs. Our mission is to share these with you, to bring you into the fold of Pugliese hospitality so that you too may experience the treasures of this ancient land.

Easy baked tilapia with basil and caper pesto

Le Sorelle

This is one of our favorite recipes which come to our rescue when we're in a "what's for dinner?" pinch. Not only is it SUPER easy, it's also SUPER yummy, and will impress any guest! The buttery, mild taste of the tilapia pairs perfectly with the sweet basil and salty capers from the spread.

Serves 4, Prep Time = 5 min, Cook Time = 12 - 20 min

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Tilapia fillets, fresh or frozen
  • 1 jar of Le Sorelle's Terra Rubra Basil and Caper spread
  • Adamo Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 F. Drizzle some EVOO on the bottom of an oven safe dish. Arrange your tilapia fillets evenly in the dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dollop the contents of the jar of Terra Rubra Basil and Caper Spread evenly over the fillets. Drizzle a bit more of EVOO over the fillets. Place in the oven and bake for circa 12 minutes if your fillets are fresh, or 20 or so minutes if they are frozen. Since oven temperatures vary, make sure that the oil is bubbling at the bottom of the pan and that your fillets have turned white and opaque. Don't over bake or they'll dry out!

Serve with lemon lemon slices and fresh basil garnish. And drizzle with our De Carlo Lemon Pressed Olive Oil for an extra bit of citrus-y flavor!

Buon appetito!
